    Voicelive2, Voicelive play have MIDI CC114 control message to bypass effects. I cannot find any information about bypass MIDI message in Voicelive 3 extreme manual. I've tried sending CC114 with 127 value but nothing happens. Can you help me, how should I bypass vocal effects using midi? Thank you in advance

      PetGerbil Can you activate the Tuner from Midi ? That would bypass the Vocal effects.

        nkrcompany No, I can't because I don't know the midi CC of the tuner either. In the manual the midi cc list is too lightweight.

        PetGerbil Hmmm, The only other way I can think of is to maybe create a "Step" with all the fx off. Or,individually turn each effect off with seperate CC's. P.I.T.A either way. :/

    I am wondering if this is possible and if not I would love to see this minor tweak made to the Perform V firmware update.

    In order to edit an effects parameter you hold down the desired effect, it begins blinking, and the LED lights around the wheel turn on allowing you to turn up or down the effect and scroll through the different styles of effects.  After a short while (maybe 5 seconds?) the wheel lights turn off, the effects pad stops blinking, and the effect is no longer editable.  Is it possible to disable the automatic turn off and make it so the effect remains editable until disengaged by the user?  Is it possible to hold the effect so that the lights around the scroll wheel remain on and will stay on until manually turned off?  

    If this is not possible, can this be a feature request?  Related: how do you submit a feature request to TC Helicon?

    J’ai effectué une restauration du firmware de mon multi-effets TC-Helicon VoiceLive 3 (VL3X) pour que mon VL3X soit reconnu par mon DAW et  par VoiceSupport 2.

     

    J’ai tenté sans succès de mettre à jour le firmware à l'aide d'une clé USB et de VoiceSupport 2 

    J’ai redémarré VL3X avec une clé en FAT 32 contenant le fichier VoiceLive3 2.2.00 Build366.syx et le VL3X n’a pas pris en compte la mise à jour, il est resté en version 2.0.00 BUILD 311 

    Le fichier VoiceLive3 2.2.00 Build366.syx et/ou le VoiceSupport 2 ne me permettent pas de remettre à jour et faire fonctionner VL3X correctement avec mon DAW depuis la panne

     

    J’ai trouvé le fichier VoiceLive3 2.2.00 Build366.syx dans le dossier TC Helicon de mon ordinateur. L’application VoiceSupport 2 a été rechargée et installée plusieurs fois par précaution. Le fichier firmware a été rechargé et booté plusieurs fois sur VL3X.

     

    Merci de bien vouloir m’indiquer la procédure pour mettre à jour mon VL3X et lui rendre toutes ces fonctionnalités d’hier.

    I am wanting to use Voicelive 3 to have custom harmonies in some songs. 

    In one song (Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again), the harmony starts a 3rd above, then goes a 5th above, then a 6th above, before returning to 3rds above. I am using the step function to move through these chagnes without changing presets. 

    The problem I am having is that the key of the harmonies changes mid song. The key of the song is E, but when I go to the bridge of the song (on a B chord), the key of the harmonies changes to B. I have Natural Play turned off in the Setup (Global setting), but I can't find how to turn it off in the preset.

    I think the natural play is causing the change of key mid song, but I can't stop it from doing this. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks

      Nigel67 Hi, a colleague has mentioned that they think it is the MODE V1-4 settings within each preset that needs to be switched OFF. The default setting of MODE V1 is NATPLAY, and they think that is the reason why you are getting the change of key. Please let me know the outcome of changing this setting.

      • I want to disable NaturalPlay
        refrek Thanks Nigel. I actually see 5 settings in the Mode section (Natplay, Scale, Shift, Pedal and Fixed). I have Scale selected as I am using a custom scale inputted via the Map In Note option further down the Harmonies block. So yeh, NatPlay is not on. I checked after reading your suggestion. Any other ideas?

      refrek I think I've figured out my problem. I changed all the non scale tones in each custom scale to 'No Change', and that got rid of the warbling. It also seemed to clear up the key changing issue too.

      The Voicelive 3 is a fantastic unit, does so much, but the manual has to be the least informative manual I've ever read. It's like a sales pitch, doesn't actually go in depth into much at all.

    How can I direct backing tracks to go out on a particular output, say on one of the 1/4" guitar jack outputs?

    I seem to be having issues with the harmonies.  No matter where I set the slider harmony level, the harmonies are way in the background and barely audible.  I cannot hear them.  It doesn't matter was present I'm on.  I cannot find anything in the manual that addresses this type of trouble shooting.   What has happened.

      kiskadar69 1.Check the value of the "Harmony" parameter on the "FX Mix" page (see VoiceLive Touch 2 Reference Manual on page 4).

      2.Check the value of the "Level" parameter on the "Harmony Effect" page (see VoiceLive Touch 2 Reference Manual on page 15).

      3.Check the value of the "Level" parameters on the "Voice Edit" pages (see VoiceLive Touch 2 Reference Manual on page 18)

      4. (Hint) If you amplify the vocals in mono, set the VoiceLive Touch 2 to "Mono" or "Dual Mono" mode (see VoiceLive Touch 2 Reference Manual on page 59).

     I have had the vl3x now for 3 days... and no matter what I do I cant get my guitar to go through the pedal with effects.. there is just no output... I'm pretty sure I'm missing something.

     

    I know the pedal has input from the guitar because the level gauge and the tuner work..and I've even heard the effects through headphones on loop playback but I cant get guitar through the output to the mixer...

     

    Can anybody help its baffling me....

      PetGerbil Have you got the guitar plugged into the right hole ? The bottom one,not the top,cos that one'll mute the signal. What have you got your output settings set to ? Can't remember which one,but one will mute the signal. Have you looked in the Mixer section(Twiddle one of the 4 mini knobs to bring it up) Nothing amiss there ? Have you got something plugged into the seperate guitar outputs, Cos that will mute the guitar from the main outputs.

    New thread.  So I'm trying to learn VoiceLive3 and got to say I think the manual sucks.  It was only after bumbling around on Google trying to find out how portamento and smoothing were handled on the VL3 that I found a random reference and pulled down the VL2 manual.  WHY THE HELL isn't all the good stuff that's in the VL2 manual about the effects of all the different harmony controls and settings also in the VL3 manual?!?!?  Why do I have to bumble around to stumble on it in an older manual?   Not good TC Helicon.  

    And since there's a difference between VL2 and VL3 and the VL3 manual is woefully incomplete... can someone please tell me:

    Is the "Midi" harmony mode on the VL3 the same as the Midi Notes 4 Chan harmony mode on the VL2?  If not, is there a way to make the VL3 let me hit on the keyboard the exact harmony notes I want sung ?  And does the octave matter?  Does it actually place the harmonies on the real note(s) I play (like C4 E4 G4, or does it transpose the notes to some in range octave (which would let me play the harmonies I want with my left hand while I played something different with my right)?????    

    (Also - is the 8 voice midi controlled harmony of the VL2 not available in the VL3?  If this is TC Helicon answering - why did they kill it?  was it overkill, as in no one used 8 voice harmonies?)     

    Thanks for any assistance.

      kiskadar69 It is not mentioned in the VoiceLive 3 manual, but there should also be Notes mode:

      kiskadar69 "Does it transpose the notes to some in range octave (which would let me play the harmonies I want with my left hand while I played something different with my right)?"
      In Notes ("Manual") mode, older TC-Helicon devices have modified the received Note On octave according to a global parameter. In VoiceLive 3, IMO this is the SETUP / TRANSPOSE parameter (TC-Helicon VoiceLive 3 Reference Manual, page 152). You have to try.

        mintsdan Greetings!!! Thank you very much for the answer. But my question is not how many effects the device has but how many vocal sound generators there are in it like for example having a polyphonic concept i.e. how many sounds can be played simultaneously in a musical instrument so I ask how many vocal sounds can be added to the basic voice of the singer .... Thank you very much Great and good and blessed DAY !!!

      mintsdan Greetings!!! Thank you very much for the answer. This is what I found ... I hope that what is written here is not a simulation for 8 but actually 8 sound generators ... because in the choir it is written that it only sounds like 30 but not 30 voices ... Thank you very much !!! Harmony
      Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers. Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it. Choir
      Choir makes it sound like you have a huge group of singers singing in unison with you! Choir is perfect for huge choruses or pieces where you want to sound like you have a massive 30 person choir behind you.

    Hi... I'm using a voice live 2. The global tone button has started sticking and I have to jiggle it around a bit to get it to function. It's weird because it just started and I'm sure I haven't used it enough to wear it out. It's pretty much set and forget. Nothing spilled on the unit etc. Just started randomly. Blew it out with some compressed air. No change. A bit of electronic cleaner. No change. It just doesn't give a solid "click" when I press it, unlike the others. Any ideas? 

    Thanks,

    Jeff

      Nigel67 Hi Jeff, it could be that the switch mechanism has gone faulty. I would suggest sending in a repair ticket via the support tab at the top of the page. If the unit is still under warranty I wouldn't go trying to clean it, etc as this could affect the warranty situation.
